All students have different needs, learn at various rates, and have different learning styles. No one educational program is appropriate for all students. Therefore, students will have a broad experience of activities that engage them in media-rich content, direct instruction, project-based learning, and interest-driven and talent-driven opportunities with a healthy mind and body emphasis.
Students will learn from their teachers, peers, and community partners. This broad-based approach to learning will be an exciting and valuable experience, creating lifelong 21st-century learners and competent 21st-century citizens.
Students will learn and grow with the guidance of Highly Qualified Teachers, Success Coaches, and Intervention Specialists. The school will prioritize a nurturing environment that fosters self-discipline, individuality, and responsibility. The dedicated staff will work in small groups and one-on-one with students, addressing not only their learning issues but also their life situations that have prevented success in traditional schools.
